We had hours of fun. Most of the time was spent laughing and playing Scrabble and Perquacky (yes, I’m afraid I lost again – read about last year’s baking day.) But we did get the cake done in spite of the fooling around. And we realized that we have been spending a day together doing Christmas baking each year for 17 years! Seventeen!
